Beefy is good only as long as the wheels are wide enough for the tire size. Keep in mind that pinching a tire down to fit it on a too-narrow wheel will actually draw the sidewalls in and make it narrower. Really.

Something like what W.O.T. posted is good.

275/40's on OE 18x8's is not, and even 255/45's on those same 8's is on the verge of being not OK.


'08 GT coupe, 5M, wheels, tires, pads, fluid, a few suspension mods . . . still almost stock height
'19 WRX, 6M (hers)
'01 Maxima 20AE, 5M (spare, winter driver)
